Congratulations Sir! So you took the plunge finally. The same color you mentioned in an earlier post (it was yellow, right?) or some other?

Wish you many many happy miles with it.

4X4 AT Fortuner is a few days away , although will be 2,5-3 Lac expensive then present 4X4 Manual due to Auto + recent Excise hike so unless you are getting pre-budget prices it makes sense to hold for a while ..

Congratulations! The colour combination looks very good indeed.
Should have avoided the bull-bar though; it can potentially impact the vehicles safety systems' behaviour, and also pedestrian safety.

Overwhelmed!

With the attention this car is drawing in my city. Seems I am the first one to own this color combination here in Noida and Indirapuram area. Response has been tremendous. Friends and family are elated.

And after 1 day of driving, boy I can say - I am extremely happy with the drive and ride quality. Wonderful car!

This version comes with a few additional gizmos. a DVD Player, A Cooler, head rest displays and integrated turn indicators in OVRM Casings. Coupled with the other standard fittings and fixtures, it makes the vehicle fully packed. So far I have not missed anything. Only things top of the mind I can think of that are missing - Cruise Control & Dead Pedal.

Interiors are plush. Dash - very alluring. Leather - high quality, Switchgear - Excellent, Fit and finish - impeccable, Seating - very comfortable.

What more did I want? Nothing!

Sad and glad that this car is not selling in huge numbers.

Congratulations Aroon! I remember your confused days and how you searched high and low, and have now settled on a brilliant car

All you need is the following:
Cruise control panel (P/N: 8602A008)
Brake switch (P/N: 8614A018)

To check if your pajero sport is compatible all you need to do is open the silver steering cap on the right and check if the module pin is present under there, if yes Voila!
They are available as a direct import from Thailand and installation is straight forward. I'm not familiar with the import procedure, but the installation is a breeze. Let me know if you need help once you've procured the parts, since the Indian Pajero Sport already comes with the hardware and ECU program pre-installed if i'm right.

Do you know a vendor? Google is not helping much.

Try phlautoparts2013 at ebay Australia (please note that these details were sourced from a sister forum and all credit for locating a seller may be attributed to Mr. Iron Rock) look for the "triton" parts. I think the Pajero Sport is known as the Triton in Australia. I hope that helps! I searched ebay au and the CC unit is available for about 100 Aus $ so is the break switch cant post the links since i'm not sure we can. I have sent you the links via PM.

Congratulations Aroon on your new ride. I have seen your car a couple of time I think when driving to work recently. You seem to have been coming from Sector 93/82 thereabouts.
Looks nice that monster of yours.

Thanks Bro. I am enjoying it throughly. It's quite a car. Now with a all new ICE thrown in, I just can't keep my hands away from it.

I ripped apart the keyword Hdad unit and all speakers and got them replaced as follows:

Head unit - Pioneer 8690BT
Front - Rainbow Sound line 6.5" components
Rear - Rainbow Sound line 6.5" components
Sub - rainbow sound line 12"
Components powered by a rainbow I Paul 400.3 preamp
sub powered by digital design mono block

Obviously high quality wiring and complete damping used. System costed me something like 1.5 lacs. It's a beauty.

Logging back after a while and just saw the message. You have to consider the context in which the suggestion has been made. You are entitled to your opinion but that does not make other people's suggestions silly.
